    The number of US troops in Iraq is being ramped up by some 12,000 in advance of January's elections in Iraq. Dubbyuh's refusal to delay the elections ot the behest of Iraq's own political parties, is nothing short of simple, bullheaded intransigence. Especially in light of the decaying security situation in the country. When the folks on the ground and living there say, "Let's slow down a little.." it might be wise to listen to them.

    In order to cover this build-up of personel units are, yet again, having their tours extended. The ready and inactive reserves are also being called up. Contributing to a shortage of personel is the ARNG's failure to meet its recent enlistment quotas. As troop losses mount and raw recruits are shipped in to replace the losses, unit cohesion and morale begin to decay. But this doesn't seem to matter to the administration. But that's the beauty of an all-volunteer force. When the potential enlistees begin to see how badly they would be used in some misguided foreign adventurism, they simply stop enlisting.

    Of course, given the nature of Dubbyuh's administration, they would find an alternative. It's getting a bit drafty, don't you think?

    The troop morale is higher in Iraq than any other war in the history of the USA. The quicker the election, the quicker our troops can come home. Thanks Mr. Bush for standing your ground on this election!!

    That damn draft crap again? Lib-tards know good and well that Bush isn't going to reinstate the draft, so they have to say that there's a "backdoor draft" now. :lame2:

    Repeat after me Bully:

    "There is not going to be a draft."

    The Presidient doesn't want it.

    Rumsfield doesn't want it.

    The Pentagon doesn't want it.

    The officers don't want it.

    The troops don't want it.

    The civilians don't want it.

    The only people who do want it are Charles Rangel and a couple other hypocritical Democrats.
